obama knew he needed to have a presidential level of credibility in such hearings. republican senator marco rubio has been talking tough about benghazi for months. >> one of the narratives that the obama campaign has laid out, osama bin laden is dead, they e retreated. you start to say do they allow any story to emerge that counters that narrative. is that why they told us that benghazi was a popular uprising, because it ran counter to their campaign narrative. >> and so the pressure was on senator rubio to deliver to all his fans all the fire and brim stone they had a right to expect. he was not just facing the secretary of state, who took responsibility for what happened in benghazi. he was facing possibly the next democratic nominee for president. tonight, the marco rubio fans could not be more disappointed. >> one of the things that i'm more interested in exploring to you, how information flows within the state department. were you ever asked to participate in any sort of internal or inter-agency meeting before this attack with regard to the deteriorating security situation in li
with the geico mobile app. >>> more than half of the u.s. senate writing a letter to president obama today urging him to sign off on the keystone pipeline. i guess we can't expect the president is going to approve it any time soon, despite the promise of thousands of new jobs, a move towards energy independence and national security. the president's already blocked it twice. me, i say drill, drill, drill. and on top of that, i say pipeline, pipeline, pipeline. but let's discuss, we bring in the director of public citizens energy program and the competitive enterprise institute. you got yourself 53 senators, you got yourself refiners in the gulf coast and texs that will help every american driver, how can you possibly block this? >> first of all, it's not going to result in lower gas prices. it's going to accelerate the rate of gas loon and diesel, ports, and, secondary, this doesn't do anything for national energy independence or security. an alarm lig increasing amount of the canadian tar stands is being invested in and controlled by chinese natural interests. by 2020, they'll control production
their children. >> ifill: but sparks flew when senate republicans accused the obama administration of deceiving the nation by initially suggesting the benghazi attack was something other than terrorism. senator ron johnson of wisconsin: >> we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact... >> but could-- but, you know... >> ...and the american people could have known that within days, and they didn't know that. >> and-- with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. now, honestly, i will do my best to answer your questions about this. but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. >> ifill: republican john mccain
. and 60,000 dead. >> republican senator marco rubio said the obama policy on syria has been so disorganized when the situation is resolved, the people there will hate the u.s. >> as iran's best friend. grand central station for terrorists all over the world it was in our national interest to help an opposition form organize itself. >> iran's nuclear program, kerry reiterated the administration policy saying the clock is ticking on efforts to get the regime to comply. >> we will do what we must do, to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. it repeat here today, our policy is not containment. it is prevention. >> if that doesn't work it could ultimately lead to military conflict. up with senator channeled kerry on whether he supported the administration bombing libya in 2011 without congressional approval. >> you see the constitution really doesn't give this kind of latitude to sometimes go to war and sometimes not go to war. >> look, you can be absolutist and apply it to every circumstance. the problem is, it just doesn't work in some instances. >> with north korea threat
exchanges occurred after a republican senator ask why it took the obama administration so long to determine the assault was actually not the result of any spontaneous protest. here is secretary clinton's response to that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> whether it was because after protest or because of guys out for a walk one night decided they would go kill some americans, what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. martha: that was the most heated moment of the proceedings yesterday. joined by wyoming republican senator john barrasso, who was there who also questioned senator clinton. secretary of state clinton yesterday. he is on the senate foreign relations committee. welcome, good to have you here. >> thank you, martha. martha: why you surprised by that reaction? >> i was because it really does make a difference. it makes a difference to the american people. i would imagine it makes a big difference to the press and o
about bush. we found an example where senator obama in 2006 was upset about the debt. on the senate floor of the congressional record shows that he said, it took 42 presidents 200 years to run up atrial in debt. this administration did that in just five years. doesn't anybody call him on that? >> steve: not the main stream immediate y john. that's the reason so many people watch fox news channel, because it seems like we're the only people when are actually telling it like it is, because in 2006 when it was time to raise the debt limit under george w. bush who was president then, barak obama said can't do it. sorry. it would be unpatriotic. >> he said america has a debt problem. i intend to -- >> steve: here we are on the precipice of his second term. do we imagine that anything is going to be different than the first term where he ran up the tab? >> no. i think that's pretty clear and if you look at the national debt from president to president, bush was a big spender. got it up to 7 trillion. but obama at 16.4 trillion and at this inauguration people are saying, no, he's not a spe
magazines and closing loopholes. host: gun control could split obama, reid. they say backing restrictions could hurt the senate leader and other democrats. this story points out that for some democrats up for reelection, supporting the president will be treacherous terrain. they go on to talk about facing reelection battles in states where gun control is politically unpopular making potential votes on the proposals problematic. what might the strategy be at your organization to work with these folks to get what you want done? guest: what we intend to do is to make clear there is broad support from gun owners and nra members for a number of these measures. to show the politics of this issue. the country's attitudes toward this issue has changed significantly since the last time we had a debate, a comprehensive conversation with the american people reducing gun violence. i think you have seen over time poll after poll showed that people support these approaches. people want to have a background check for every purchase and sale of a gun because you do not want to have guns in the hands of c
's an odd turn-around, two years ago we were hearing this from senate minority leader republican mitch mcconnell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? wil
you will find a lot of the senators in red states in louisiana, arkansas, south dakota, who are going to try to distance themselves from what president obama said in this speech because they're worried about their elections. i think that in the center of the country and the red states where these senators are running they don't think that the president's message works and they're going to try to move themselves away from that because they're worried about it. they're worried about all these -- >> we're talking about the majority of the country though. if the majority is with the president, is he too liberal? that's what i'm asking. you can call the guy too left when he's right where the middle is? how can you keep saying that? it's the only question i want to put to you. if more than 50% support equality of marriage, more than 50% support a woman's right to choose, if more than 50% awith him on guns a s ans and foreign how can you call that the far left? >> let me put it this way, the fact of the matter is this is going to be politically very problematic for harry r50ed because for th
that president obama's focus is to annihilate the republican party. is that the collective viewpoint here in the republicans in the senate or not? >> greta, i've seen a number of presidents in their second terms, i've seen president reagan and president clinton in their second term and president bush, jr. in his second term and there's always an outreach starting with the inauguration. look, we've got to work together. obviously, it was a very confrontational speech that the president gave that i think would have been more appropriate if he feels that way at the state of union as opposed to an inaugural speech. i think you can lend credence to the belief that the president of the united states want to regain a majority in the house of representatives and in order to achieve that he has to split the republican party, particularly in the house and so i regret that i didn't hear one word from the president about it's time we all sat down and worked together and addressed these issues that are confronting the nation, but it is what it is. that means that we're in for a pretty rough couple of
in the united states senate for almost four years, so no, i don't think she's made a very good president. >> and finally, sir, according to a new book, president obama call called the widow of one of the people who died in benghazi, sean smith, the day after the attack and said, promise to avenge the deaths of americans. do you believe him? >> well, i'll take him as his word. but you know, that was another curious question i would like to ask secretary clinton is why when those bodies were coming home, she went up to tyrone woods' father and said we were going to bring this guy who created this video to justice. what happens what was that about? they're just trying to continue to perpetuate this false narrative. this wasn't caused by the fact that al-qaeda was on the rise. they're misleading the american public. >> thank you. >>> still to come, we're facing some of the coldest temperatures in this country. some scientists say it's due to global warming. plus, apple's shares plunging today and manti te'o admits he lied, so is he telling the truth now? try running four.ning a restaurant is
. and an underground nuclear test will not directly threaten the u.s., but it will raise the stakings for the obama administration. >>> new poll numbers indicate new jersey mayor cory booker leading frank lautenberg in a hypothetical democratic primary for the u.s. senate. according to the latest quinnipiac poll, booker leads 51 to 30. lautenberg has not said whether he'll run for re-election next year. and booker is, quote, still exploring the idea of a senatorial bid. >>> all right. up next, a republican rift. we're taking a deep dive into the power struggle going on right now within the gop. it has to do with what's going on down in charlotte and the rnc. you're watching "the daily rundown," only on msnbc. bster is hitting the streets to tell real people about our new 15 under $15 menu! oh my goodness... oh my gosh, this looks amazing... [ male announcer ] 15 entrees under $15! it's our new maine stays! seafood, chicken, and more! ooh! the tilapia with roasted vegetables. i'm actually looking at the wood grilled chicken with portobello wine sauce. that pork chop was great. no more fast food frid
